Gaza-based terrorists launched over 700 rockets at Israeli cities and towns throughout south since Saturday morning, firing mainly at civilian targets. 4 Israelis were killed today, the highest daily death toll since 2014.

While dozens of rockets were intercepted by Iron Dome defense systems, many Israelis were injured as residential buildings sustained direct hits. One of the victims is an 80-year-old woman who was seriously injured in the city of Kiryat Gat.

In response to the attacks, the Israeli Air Force (IAF) has carried out hundreds of attacks against terror infrastructure in the Gaza Strip, including training and weapons manufacturing compounds, a Hamas naval compound and headquarters, and a terror tunnel that ran from Gaza into Israel. At least two terrorists were killed in the strikes. (Read more)

4. IDF Prepares to Answer Netanyahu's Call to "Deal Hard Blow" to Gaza Terror Groups - Breaking Israel News

Almost 500 rockets were fired at Israel from Gaza in less than 24 hours, beginning around 9:30 am on Saturday. The IDF responded by hitting over 220 military targets in Gaza with airstrikes and tank fire, killing at least two terrorists.

At least four terrorists were reported killed in the Israeli strikes, all of whom were said to have been part of rocket launching teams. The IDF also destroyed a terror tunnel that extended into Israel.

The Palestinian Islamic Jihad (PIJ) released a statement that it would continue in its attacks. "We will respond forcefully against the Israeli enemy until the cessation of aggression," the statement read.

In a joint statement, PIJ and Hamas said they were planning on increasing the range of the rocket attacks. "A barrage of about 50 rockets was fired at the area of Ashkelon, and we are weighing increasing the fire to more than 40 kilometers in the coming hours if the aggression [Israeli repsonse] continues," the statement said.

Hebrew-language media reported on Saturday Prime Minister Netanyahu instructed defense officials to "to deal a hard blow" to the terror groups in Gaza. As per the Prime Minister's request, an IDF spokesperson said the military sent its 7th Armored Brigade southward "so that there would be a force available in the Gaza Division in case there is a need for it."

Emergency Prayer Alert

Escalation with Gaza

May 5th, 2019

Israel is at the brink of war with the terrorists running Gaza!

1. Pray for the Security Cabinet, the IDF General Staff and especially PM and Defense Minister Netanyahu that they will have God's tactics and strategy for the battle.

- Tactics: how to fight the day to day battles.
- Strategy: putting together the proper tactics to produce the desired end of war results.

2. Pray for them to have God's timing and if it is the time that they would not hesitate to do what needs to be done, Eurovision or not. It is assumed by many in Israel, that Israel is holding back because of the upcoming "Eurovision" song extravaganza to be held in Tel Aviv next week. Many of the participating groups are already in Tel Aviv with more arriving daily. The finale will be 18 May.
3. Pray for the protection and success of the IDF soldiers who will be involved.

4. Pray for the protection of civilians and both sides. (As of the moment 4 Israeli civilians have been killed.)

Something to Note

Something to Note

One of our own friends pointed toward the start of Ramadan on Monday, May 6th, with the timing of these assaults on Israel. Let us continue to cry out that those who are yet ensnared by the lies of Islam be set free; and to give thanks for the many Muslims who are now coming to Christ, worldwide, every day. Praise the Lord!

About CHPP

About Capitol Hill Prayer Partners

Our Mission Statement

Capitol Hill Prayer Partners (CHPP) is a ministry which is positioned on Capitol Hill in Washington, D.C., helping members of the Body of Christ to "pray for those in authority over us" in our federal government. Our primary purpose is to offer intercession on site for the members of Congress and their staffs each day that the Senate and the House of Representatives are in session; and our chief prayer focus is that "God's will be done in earth, as it is in heaven." [Matthew 6:10].

Because Jesus Christ has shed His blood for all, we, too, pray for ALL, in a nonpartisan manner. Also, because the scriptures indicate that "the effectual, fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much" (James 4:17), we are confident that fervent prayer, offered in the halls of the highest chambers of government in our land, can avail much for America. Capitol Hill Prayer Partners welcomes those who feel called to join us, engaging in this strategic work of intercession for our nation: "For there is no power but of God; the powers that be are ordained of God." [Romans 13:1]
